Abstract:     
The accompanying article argues that most sports agent laws subordinate athletes’ interests to those of the National Collegiate Athletic Association (“NCAA”), and that sports agent law needs to change to better protect both professional and amateur athletes. This article is timely in light of the Uniform Law Commission’s recent decision to amend the Uniform Athlete Agents Act to encompass a broader range of concerns. In addition, this article builds upon recent literature that calls into doubt the legitimacy of the NCAA’s power within American society.
